Vocational Education

Though many American high schools have moved away from their vo-tech programs in the last thirty years, Claremont maintains a wide variety of classes designed to prepare their students for the skilled trades of tomorrow - today 


Claremont’s primary vo tech instructor is Dr. Heinz Drusselstein, an immigrant from Eastern Europe who speaks with a distinct accent. He acts like a tough teacher, no-nonsense in his demeanor and address, but he’s a marshmellow in private. No powers, retired mad scientist (or so he claims - his stories about the good old days sound pretty crazy), very clever. Divorced, father of a college student who must have gotten her good looks from her mom.


Votech classes you might take at Claremont include:  

    • Auto repair

    • Woodworking

    • Computer-aided drafting

    • Driver education

    • Cosmetology

    • Networking

    • Metalworking

Family and Consumer Science

Though many American high schools have moved away from their family and consumer science programs in the last thirty years, Claremont maintains a wide variety of classes designed to prepare their students for work in the domestic sciences and for being “responsible, competent adults. 


Claremont’s primary family and consumer science instructor is Darla Lynn, a woman with the build of an Olympian athlete that she usually keeps behind an apron when she’s working. Wears enough patterned dresses that you’ll think she’s someone doing trad housewife cosplay, but may well be the loudest and most vigorous feminist on Claremont’s faculty. Greying black hair, looks to be a well-preserved fifty. Doesn’t talk much about her romantic life but wears a rainbow pin and yes that was her at the Pride parade! Strong enough to lift a fully-grown man over her head without breaking a sweat, she obviously takes care of herself. 


Family and consumer science classes you might take at Claremont include:  

  • Culinary arts

  • Family and consumer science

  • Home economics

  • Nutrition

  • CPR

  • Fashion design

  • Retail marketing

Wherever you plan to go to college, whatever you plan to study, whatever your heroic future, you will likely be required to take some classes that rely on the quantitative reasoning skills you will solidify in your high school classes in math. 

Claremont’s primary math instructor is Darian Skylar. He’s a giant jerk! Sure if an adult asks him, he’ll say he sees it as his job to teach them never to underestimate the human mind; a weaker opponent can always beat a stronger opponent by outwitting him - but outwitting your students makes you a jerk, ya jerk. Blond, late middle age, it would surprise the hell out of his students to see him at home with his husband and their three cats. Knows he should probably retire but likes the work. 

Mathematics courses you take at Claremont might include: 

  • Pre-Algebra

  • Algebra 1

  • Algebra 2

  • Geometry

  • Trigonometry

  • Pre-Calculus

  • Calculus

  • Statistics

  • Integrated math

English (Language Arts) - Joan Collier 

English and Language Arts high school classes provide an important foundation for college success – regardless of what you plan to study or what career path you’d like to take, you’ll need strong reading comprehension and the ability to communicate clearly through your writing.

Claremont’s primary English instructor is Joan Collier, a semi-retired heroine named Fusion who also has done both print and television media in Freedom City and on the West Coast. She’s a tall woman of mixed Anglo and Native descent, with a muscular build and tentacled arms she usually keeps tucked under a big, A-line black skirt. She has a reputation as a strict grader that she’s entirely earned, but has good taste in fiction. Married to a man, has a daughter who has graduated from Claremont a few years ago. 

Various English courses you might take at Claremont include 

  • American literature

  • Cosmological literature

  • Comparative literature

Social Studies

Even if you don’t plan to study history or politics in college, your social studies classes are an important piece of your development as an engaged, productive citizen of whatever nation, dimension, or plane of existence you happen to be from. Studying the forces that have shaped and continue to shape our world are critical for making sense of various subjects you may study in the future.

Claremont’s primary social studies teacher is Gale al-Rashid, a dashing athletic type with a mysterious backstory and what seem to be elemental powers. If asked, Gale just shrugs and says “I am just here on a temporary visa, this is not really home - so why put down roots?” Gale (whose pronouns are they/them, thank you!) looks to be in their twenties and has a taste for old-fashioned suits and ties. Gale is the sort of teacher who likes to make some students their special project, offering them particular mentoring outside of the classroom. Dark hair, tan skin, Muslim. 

Social studies classes you might take at Claremont include: 

  • American History

  • World History

  • Geography

  • US Government

  • European history

  • International relations

  • Economics

  • Psychology

  • Women’s studies

Colleges are placing a greater and greater emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Success in your high school science classes is a crucial piece of making yourself a competitive applicant. Scientific literacy is also a necessary competency for enabling you to productively engage with your studies and current issues.

Claremont’s primary science teacher is Athena Téras, a Greek woman who keeps her bright green hair in carefully-maintained dreadlocks. She's young and perky, and passionate about science. Rumors abound about her - shapeshifted gorgon? Daughter of Daedalus? Mechanical woman? Enjoys puzzles, drinks lots of really strong coffee, never seems to sleep. Not married, not interested in anything but science - or so she says, anyway. 

Most states require three to four years of Science coursework in high school.

  • Earth science

  • Physical science

  • Biology

  • Chemistry

  • Organic chemistry

  • Physics

  • Life science

  • Environmental science

  • Astronomy

  • Zoology
